We don’t need an object lesson.

From the first day we see able kids run when we cannot. Hear things we cannot hear. See things we cannot see….interact, percieve,relate in ways we cannot.

We know you think our difference unworthy, frightening, bad,

We know you have not yet understood that the difference is simply difference and some of you never will.

You will use difference to exclude us not just from education or jobs…but from life events you feel *safer* excluding us from.

You didn’t have to vote the ‘different’ kid out of class to drive home the message that it’s ok to do that.

It’s already being done.
